Nintendo UK: 3DS is definitely worth the money

Nintendo UK: 3DS is definitely worth the money photo



While most US gamers were mildly pleased with the 3DS' $249.99 price point, those perpetually unfortunate European gamers are less than thrilled. Nintendo UK, however, has defended the projected £219-£230 price, claiming it is "definitely" worth shelling out for.

"Most definitely [it's worth the money]," says Nintendo UK boss David Yarnton. "When you look at what it does compared to anything else on the market and beyond as far as not just gaming ... once people get their hands on it it's is great value because it doesn't do just what they'd expect from traditional gaming.

"A lot of the other features that are coming through with it as an entertainment device as well as just gaming - the downloadable content from people like Sky and Eurosport and those sorts of things ... with 3D without glasses there's nothing else on the market at that sort of price."

Given how mad some PAL gamers have been following this morning's data blast, I don't think the promise of Eurosport content is going to assuage their fury. Still, look on the bright side -- we haven't heard the PSP2's price yet!
